Real Estate Internet Data Exchange (IDX) is a real estate property listing search website that enables the searching of approved Multiple Listing Service (MLS) properties in a area based on particular query.
& IDX website users gain the benefit of searching for and viewing real estate listing anonymously. IDX websites are able to provide detailed property information and provide much better property listing exposure than an Multiple Listing Service.
IDX real estate websites benefits realtors and real estate buyers and sellers. IDX websites provide an opportunity for real estate agencies and brokers to display each other's listings on their own websites without the need to frame their MLS results, which provides them with complete control over the content, presentation and format of their listings, as well as creating valuable real estate related content on their own website, which is very important for ranking highly on search engine results. Another benefit to realtors is that users of their IDX website can search their property listings freely and qualify themselves before contacting the realtor. The benefits to real estate clients includes the ability to locate real estate listing based on their specific criteria, which saves time and helps them to focus on the property listings they are interested in.
There are rules that apply to real estate agencies, brokers and companies' regarding the display of property details on their websites. These property listing display rules are determined by individual MLS organizations, which form their policies around the recommendations of the National Association of Realtors.
IDX policy is nearing its replacement by a new Internet Listing Display policy being formed by the National Association of Realtors.
A common and standard data exchange protocol for IDX information is the Real Estate Transaction Specification or RETS.
